Technique Talk: CRISPR for Genome Engineering in Drosophila

Course Overview

For decades, researchers have used Drosophila melanogaster as a model for developing and applying cutting-edge genetic approaches. These have helped scientists understand complex biological processes at the molecular, cellular, and organismal levels. The CRISPR-Cas system has made genome engineering much more accessible, ushering even greater potential for this model organism.

This Technique Talk will explore how researchers apply CRISPR-Cas in Drosophila and the insights that they have gained. It will also discuss the challenges of using CRISPR in Drosophila and address translatability between Drosophila techniques and other model species.

Learning Objectives

  • Genome engineering in Drosophila melanogaster
  • Technical considerations when choosing an engineering approach
  • Transferring Drosophila techniques to other species
